Lava flowing from Mauna Loa, the world’s largest active volcano, has slowed considerably. It is now oozing at a speed of less than 50 yards per hour, meaning it takes about two hours to move the length of a football field. 

Only one fissure is active and feeding a lava flow, according to the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory. Another fissure is “sluggish,” and two others are inactive.

Mauna Loa started erupting Sunday night for the first time in almost four decades. Although the lava flow has since slowed down, it still threatens to cross over the Daniel K. Inouye Highway, also known as the DKI Highway or Saddle Road. The flow is less than three miles away from reaching the highway and is clearly visible.

Geologists say it could take a week before the lava reaches the DKI Highway — if it reaches at all. The road connects the east and west sides of Hawaii’s Big Island and has become a viewing point for thousands looking to see the historic eruption. 

David Phillips, deputy scientist-in-charge of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, told CBS News there is “no imminent threat” to residents on the west side or the south side of the island at this time.

But if Mauna Loa’s flow had taken a different path, the city of Hilo could have been in the bullseye. 

The Hawaii Emergency Management Agency said Friday they deployed a team to Hilo to assist with Hawaii County’s emergency response.

“While the lava is moving very slowly at the moment and doesn’t pose an imminent hazard to populated areas, it’s still a hazard with huge destructive potential,” Luke Meyers, the agency’s administrator, said in a statement.

Air quality remains good despite ash and sulfur dioxide being emitted due to the eruption, the state health department said.

The post St Edward’s Crown to be resized for King Charles III’s coronation appeared first on Duluth Area Buzz.]]>


King Charles III will wear St Edward’s Crown for his coronation next year, but it will need to be resized before the significant event.

The crown has been removed from the Tower of London to allow for modification work to begin before the ceremony on 6 May 2023, Buckingham Palace has said.

Where the historic centrepiece of the Crown Jewels was taken to was kept secret until it was safely delivered.

Versions of the St Edward’s Crown are thought to have been used at the moment of coronation for British and English monarchs since the 13th century.

The current crown was made for King Charles II in 1661, as a replacement for the medieval crown which had been melted down in 1649.

The original was thought to date back to the 11th-century royal saint, Edward the Confessor, the last Anglo-Saxon king of England.

It is St Edward’s Crown that appears in the royal coat of arms of the United Kingdom, the Royal Mail logo and in badges of the Armed Forces.

In a statement, Buckingham Palace said on Saturday: “St Edward’s Crown, the historic centrepiece of the Crown Jewels, has been removed from the Tower of London to allow for modification work to begin ahead of the Coronation on Saturday 6 May 2023.”

The coronation will take place in Westminster Abbey, eight months after the monarch’s accession and the death of the Queen.

It is understood that the ceremony will include the same core elements of the traditional service, which has retained a similar structure for more than 1,000 years, while also recognising the spirit of our times.

Charles’s coronation is expected to be on a smaller scale and shorter, with suggestions that it could last just one hour.

It is also expected to be more inclusive of multi-faith Britain than past coronations but will be an Anglican service, with the Queen Consort crowned alongside Charles.

Guest numbers will be reduced from 8,000 to around 2,000, with peers expected to wear suits and dresses instead of ceremonial robes, and a number of rituals, such as the presentation of gold ingots, axed.

It comes after the Daily Mirror reported the King was planning a scaled-back and “less expensive” ceremony than the late Queen’s in 1953, which lasted around three hours, in acknowledgement of Britain’s cost-of-living crisis.

The late Queen’s coronation was a carnival of celebration, with half a million spectators lining her procession route on 2 June.

Despite initial reservations, the late monarch eventually agreed to the TV cameras being present in Westminster Abbey to capture the historic event, with licence holders doubling in anticipation.

An estimated 27m people in Britain alone watched the coronation live on their black and white televisions, and the images were beamed around the world.

The uncrowned Queen Elizabeth II set out from Buckingham Palace in the Golden State Coach, with the procession some 250 strong including traditional representatives from crown, church and state as it entered the abbey.

The Queen’s coronation dress, by couturier Norman Hartnell, was a white satin gown and was encrusted with diamonds, gold and silver bullion, seed pearls, crystals, pale amethysts and sequins to create a shimmering effect.

The service, which took place in front of a congregation of more than 8,000, began with the Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Geoffrey Fisher’s declaration to the assembled bishops: “Sirs, I here present unto you Queen Elizabeth, your undoubted Queen.”

After the ceremony, trumpets sounded and royal gun salutes were fired at the Tower of London and elsewhere.

At the time, each. Commonwealth prime minister had his own carriage for the longer return procession to the Palace. Coronation chicken was also invented for the foreign guests who were to be entertained afterwards.

The night came to an end as hundreds of thousands on London’s Victoria Embankment watched a lavish coronation fireworks display.

Just as 2021’s Ultimate Gray and sunny yellow Illuminating had to move aside for 2022’s Very Peri, it’s now the periwinkle blue’s turn to step back. In 2023, the color experts at Pantone predict, we’ll all be seeing a lot more red — Viva Magenta, to be specific.

The forecasters at the company’s color consultancy Pantone Color Institute have named a color of the year for more than 20 years — and say next year’s “animated red” is “powerful and empowering.”

Viva Magenta 18-1750 “revels in pure joy, encouraging experimentation and self-expression without restraint, an electrifying, and a boundaryless shade that is manifesting as a stand-out statement,” the company announced on its website this week. 

According to Pantone, the color of the year reflects culture and lifestyle trends. 

“It is a color we see crossing all areas of design; a color that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude on the part of the consumers, a color that will resonate around the world, a color that reflects what people are looking for, a color that can hope to answer what they feel they need,” according to an interview with the institute’s Vice President Laurie Pressman about the selection process, published on the company’s site.

Pressman said the members of the institute who weigh in on the year’s color come from a variety of industries, locations and backgrounds, and discuss color trends throughout the year.

“We discuss our color psychology and color trend research looking to connect the mood of the global zeitgeist with the corresponding color family. From there, we drill down further to identify the exact right shade,” she said.

As for what Viva Magenta could signify about culture heading into 2023, the company calls the color “audacious, full of wit and inclusive of all.”

BOSTON ― Rami Malek had nothing but praise for Prince William’s take on sustainability at The Earthshot Prize Awards in Massachusetts on Friday night.

The Oscar-winning actor ― who has attended his fair share of awards ceremonies ― told HuffPost just why the Prince of Wales’ focus on a consciously produced show was so “extraordinary” to him.

“It makes you think about everything you’re doing, [like] how you’re getting here,” he said. Guests were encouraged to travel with a low carbon footprint to the show, which was purposely located within walking distance of many points in Boston.

“We’re all reusing our outfits, which is something you don’t usually see in our line of work,” Malek added with a laugh and a smile. “I appreciate that. It’s been extremely well considered and well thought of, and hopefully influences the way we carry through our day-to-day.”

Presenters and hosts were taken by electric vehicle to the ceremony, which was run by local crews to avoid flying in British staffers. Makeup used for the event was vegan and cruelty-free, while the food was plant-based. No single-use plastics were present.

Rather than the typical red runner, guests instead arrived on a green carpet, which was reused from the 2021 Earthshot Prize Awards and then recycled after the event. Attendees were encouraged to rewear outfits, or to source something vintage or sustainable for the ceremony (which is why Kate Middleton’s choice to rent a $91 gown was right on theme).

All of the sustainable touches ― plus the recognition of the five winners of The Earthshot Prize, who were honored for their efforts to save the planet ― made for an evening that Malek said meant the world to him.

“I appreciate what Prince William’s doing,” Malek said, adding that ecological decline is the “greatest crisis of our lifetime.”

“We can really effect change in the greatest way with these innovators who are being awarded this evening. It could easily be thought of as something that is pessimistic gloom and doom, and Earthshot’s taken a way to flip it on its head and say, ‘Let’s inspire people.’”

“Let’s come up with the greatest solutions we can to save this planet, because you think about everything going on in the world — and all the crises — this is the greatest one we’ll ever live with,” the actor added. “And hopefully we’ll find a way to beat it. I know we can.”

Earlier Friday, the Prince of Wales published an exclusive essay for HuffPost, talking about why he remains a “stubborn optimist” about the Earth’s future.

“Dire predictions about our natural world aren’t the only side to this story and they don’t have to be our future,” the royal wrote. “In this critical decade, I invite you all to be optimistic, to support the game-changers and to believe in the power of human ingenuity.”

Indiana’s Republican attorney general may continue to investigate an Indianapolis doctor who spoke publicly about providing an abortion to a 10-year-old rape victim from neighboring Ohio, a judge ruled Friday.

An attempt to block a probe by Attorney General Todd Rokita’s office was rejected by Marion County Judge Heather Welch. She also ruled Friday in a separate lawsuit that Indiana’s abortion ban adopted in August violates the state’s religious freedom law signed by then-Gov. Mike Pence in 2015. The Indiana abortion ban, however, has been on hold since mid-September as courts consider a challenge from abortion clinic operators who argue the ban violates the state constitution.

The judge’s ruling on the investigation into Dr. Caitlin Bernard came two days after the attorney general’s office asked the state medical licensing board to discipline Bernard, alleging she violated state law by not reporting the girl’s child abuse to Indiana authorities and broke patient privacy laws by telling a newspaper reporter about the girl’s treatment.

That account sparked a national political uproar in the weeks after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June, with some news outlets and Republican politicians suggesting Bernard fabricated the story. The girl had been unable to get an abortion in Ohio after a more restrictive abortion law took effect there.

Bernard filed a lawsuit against the state attorney general last month, arguing Rokita’s office was wrongly justifying the investigation with “frivolous” consumer complaints submitted by people with no personal knowledge about the girl’s treatment. Bernard and her lawyers maintain the girl’s abuse had already been reported to Ohio police before the doctor ever saw the child.

But the judge turned down Bernard’s request for an injunction to block the investigation. Welch ruled the medical licensing board now had jurisdiction over the matter since the attorney general filed the complaint on Wednesday. That complaint asked the state medical licensing board to impose “appropriate disciplinary action” without specifying a proposed penalty. The board, which has the authority to suspend, revoke or place on probation a doctor’s license, said Friday it had received the complaint but that no hearing date had been set.

Welch, however, found that Rokita wrongly made public comments about investigating Bernard before the complaint was filed. Welch wrote that Rokita’s statements “are clearly unlawful breaches of the licensing investigations statute’s requirement that employees of the Attorney General’s Office maintain confidentiality over pending investigations until they are so referred to prosecution.”

Bernard’s lawyer, Kathleen DeLaney, criticized Rokita for violating his “duty of confidentiality” and preemptively pushing the case to the medical board, thus “taking it out of the hands of Judge Welch.”

“We are confident in the record and testimony that we have already developed and look forward to presenting Dr. Bernard’s evidence to the Medical Licensing Board,” DeLaney said.

The attorney general’s office said the ruling supported protection of patient privacy rights.

“The doctor and her attorneys initiated this media frenzy from the beginning, and it continues to draw attention to this innocent little girl who is trying to cope with a horrific trauma,” the office said in a statement that did not address the judge’s criticism of Rokita’s public comments on the case.

Bernard provided abortion drugs to the girl in Indianapolis in late June, as she said doctors determined the girl was unable to have an abortion in neighboring Ohio. That’s because Ohio’s “fetal heartbeat” law had taken effect with the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to end women’s constitutional protections for abortion. Such laws ban abortions from the time cardiac activity can be detected in an embryo, which is typically around the sixth week of pregnancy.

Rokita has kept the investigation going even after a 27-year-old man was charged in Columbus, Ohio, with raping the girl and public records obtained by The Associated Press show Bernard met Indiana’s required three-day reporting period for an abortion performed on a girl younger than 16.

In Welch’s ruling on the state’s abortion ban, the judge sided with five residents — who hold Jewish, Muslim and spiritual faiths — who argued that the ban would violate their religious rights on when they believe abortion is acceptable.

“The undisputed evidence establishes that the Plaintiffs do not share the State’s belief that life begins at fertilization or that abortion constitutes the intentional taking of a human life,” Welch wrote. “To the contrary, they have different religious beliefs about when life begins. … Under the law, the Court finds these are sincere religious beliefs.”

Rokita’s office, which has been defending the abortion ban in court, did not immediately comment on the religious freedom lawsuit ruling.

Noodle, a dog who became famous on social media for his “bones or no-bones” videos, died on Friday, his owner said. Jonathan Graziano, the dog’s owner, said Noodle died at home in his arms. He was 14.

“It’s a day that I always knew was coming but never thought would arrive,” Graziano said, adding that it is incredibly sad, and difficult.  

“It has been the privilege of my life to care for Noodle these past 7 years,” he wrote on TikTok and Instagram. “The sweetest man there has ever been and there will ever be.”

Graziano has 4.5 million followers on TikTok and another 274,000+ on Instagram. In daily updates, he would post videos showing himself propping Noodle up and seeing if the elderly pug stayed standing, meaning “bones day,” or flopped over, meaning “no bones day” — a day to take it easy.

He encouraged his followers to celebrate Noodle, “who made millions of people happy.”

“What a run,” Graziano said in his tearful video on Saturday.

Christmas trees — real and artificial — are increasing in price this year. 

Most wholesale growers say they have to charge up to 15% more. The average cost of a real tree was nearly $70 in 2021, according to the National Christmas Tree Association. This year, a real tree is expected to cost between $80 and $100, per the Real Christmas Tree Board.

“There’s a lot of labor in a Christmas tree,” said Los Angeles Christmas tree lot owner Tina Callas. 

Callas said she is also seeing supply shortages. 

For artificial trees, high shipping fees from China are adding to the cost. 

Larry Gold, president of Aldik Home, which sells top-of-the-line trees with built-in LED lights in Los Angeles, said he also had to raise prices. Some of his trees cost more than $1,000. Gold said cheaper trees may not look as real, or last as long. 

But which tree has more impact on the environment — the real ones that are cut down every year, or artificial ones made of plastic that are reused? 

Bill Ulfelder, executive director of the Nature Conservancy, said a real tree is “unquestionably” better for the environment because live Christmas trees are a renewable resource. 

“The only debate is around the carbon footprint,” Ulfelder said. 

Ulfelder explained that you would have to keep an artificial Christmas tree for years for it to potentially have a lower carbon footprint than a real tree. 

“I’ve seen some figures say seven or eight years. I’ve seen some as long as 20,” he said. “So it’s not an insignificant amount of time.”
